Yeah. Mine had a warranty, so all of its failures were covered. But it still cost me a lot of stress, time, inconvenience, and anger. Sold it with 6k miles left on the warranty.

It would be interesting to take a survey of car buyers, like this:

Would your rather buy a:
  • Car that's great to drive but needs to go to the garage every 4 to 6 months for repairs, adjustments, recalls, etc., or a
  • Car that's very good to drive (but not great) that never requires anything more than routine preventive maintenance?

I wonder how that survey would turn out. Because that very question is the key to VW's success.
